Apparently we weren’t the only ones shocked that V. Unbeatable only made it to fourth place in the AGT Season 14 finale. Going into the finals, the Indian dance group seemed to be a frontrunner, along with winner Kodi Lee.
After the group was eliminated, many fans took to social media to express their outrage. Some thought V. Unbeatable should have won the whole competition, while other were shocked that they didn’t at least come in second place.
V. Unbeatable Fans Tweet Their Anger
Some fans took issue with how high Detroit Youth Choir placed in the competition. Twitter users seemed to think V. Unbeatable should have placed higher than them. “Detroit Youth Choir over V. Unbeatable? America, you’re drunk,” one fan wrote.
Another user argued that Detroit Youth Choir didn’t even deserve to be in the finals, let alone in second place. Someone else wrote that no one else in the finals was more talented than V. Unbeatable, except Kodi Lee.
Fans didn’t limit their complaints to Twitter. The comments on Talent Recap’s video of the results feature several remarks from angry V. Unbeatable fans. “This is the worst agt season…. V-unbeatable are my champion,” wrote one user.
Another fan said that V. Unbeatable were “the real winners” and vowed never to watch the show again. “Americans always got it wrong ! V unbeatable had to win this season!” someone else wrote. “No questions asked….”
V. Unbeatable Responds To Their Loss
The group themselves is feeling more positive about their AGT loss than many of their fans. They posted on Twitter shortly after the show aired, and shared a hopeful message about their future.
The first tweet declared their belief that “people who don’t win end up getting big.” It’s true that many talent show losers ended up with better careers than the winners. As V. Unbeatable explained, they’ve lost other talent shows before and moved on to bigger and better things.
“We want to say talent never dies,” the thread finished, “it take time to reach height [sic].” We love their positive attitude, and hope that we’ll see more of these talented performers in the future.
And hey, there’s always the second season of AGT: The Champions. According to host Terry Crews, the all-stars edition is set to return in January 2020. Maybe V. Unbeatable will be in the lineup.
